Saying I do

Share your first kiss as husband and wife under an arc of flowers surrounded by cheering family and friends. As the canapes and champagne roll out prepare for a barrage of congratulations and good wishes. Sneak out with your bridal party for some photography amongst native bush.

Let the celebrations begin!


Sit back and enjoy your first meal as husband and wife at your reception – just remember to save room for wedding cake! Your guests will enjoy the views of the lake from our restaurant windows.

As the night draws to a close, you can rest easy knowing guests are sleeping comfortably at our suites and hotel style rooms after a few too many drinks.

Additional extras to create connections

The bride will enjoy getting pampered with hair and make-up in the morning while sipping champagne or chardonnay. The groom and his boys might enjoy fishing or taking a boat cruise on the lake before the formalities begin. 

Clink some beers and say cheers with your closest family and friends in our BBQ area on the night before your wedding. Share laughs and stories with a pizza fresh from the pizza oven or a feast cooked on the BBQs.
